Life is in His Son

Bible Verses

1 John 5:11 And this is the testimony, that God gave to us eternal life and this life is in His Son. (12) He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.

Words of Ministry

...How is the overcoming life given to us? It is given to us in the Son. There is no way for us to receive the overcoming life except through the Son. When God gives us His Son, He is not giving us just the prescription but the very Doctor Himself. God does not give us merely life; He is giving us this life in His Son. Having the overcoming life is not just a matter of receiving life; it is a matter of receiving the Son of God. Therefore, when our relationship with Christ is improper, problems develop. Once we doubt Christ's faithfulness and His promises, we will have problems within. God does not give us patience, meekness, or humility independently of Christ. He gives us patience, meekness, and humility in His Son. The minute we are not right with His Son, we lose our victory. This is why we need a proper relationship with Christ every day. Every day we should say, "Lord, You are my Head, and I am Your member. Lord, You are still my life, and You are still my holiness." If we turn our eyes to ourselves, we will find none of these things. But if our eyes are turned to Christ, we will have everything. This is faith. We cannot hold on to holiness, victory, patience, or humility apart from Christ. Once we have Christ, we have holiness, victory, patience, and humility.
